I meant my idle temp for my GPUs are 70C+!!! While its on load it's between 90-95... so I'd say thats bad. I did notice my performance being affected b/c everytime I turn on my computer in the morning and run a benchmark it score around 11000-12000... then when if do that in the middle of the day or when I just finished playing a game it goes down to like 6000-9000... unless its something else thats causing this problem. This is the only reasonable answer a appeals to me.

here, a couple of these water blocks

low profile for sli

then a pump... you can get cheaper ones
http://www.dangerdenstore.com/produc...&cat=23&page=1

a dual 120mm radiator
http://www.dangerdenstore.com/produc...&cat=72&page=1

that'll take you to right around 200. again, you can get cheaper components, but this stuff should be good. add some tubing and some clips and all that fun stuff you won't be too much over budget and you'll have a nice setup that you can add an extra radiator and a cpu block to at a later date.

I'm not really experienced in water cooling... but this rig should show a significant performace over any air cooling right? B/c I know watercooling is very expensive and I'm just scared if I get the cheaper stuff it'll just suck lol.

well honestly, I'm not very versed in watercooling myself, but I don't see why they wouldn't work. Your high temps are coming from your cores not the RAM... so passive RAM cooling should be sufficient as long as you have air movement through your case. And I chose a larger radiator so you'd have better cooling. I believe that pump to be a good pump too.

you just have to make sure that the arctic coolers fit before you buy them.
